Heres some info http://www.racedandrallied.com/tech...tion-of-the-subaru-wrc-rocket-anti-lag-system

The "rocket" is a device is fitted to the header just in front of the turbo and works as a sophisticated anti-lag system. Air and fuel are fed into a combustion chamber and ignited by a spark on over-run, it can be used in three stages (depending on how long you want the engine to last) and is the cause of the loud banging noise that can be heard as these cars pass by and the flames coming out of the tail pipe. This system is used in conjunction with the boost pack which stores excess pressure in it's own reservoir to be fed back into the engine inlet side of the inter cooler when the throttle is depressed after shut off. All this is coupled to the "flat change" gear shift and launch control system which is of course controlled the the ECU.

I need something like this for my Corrado SLC that has a GT40r.

Anyone know what the fastest g60 qtr mile time with a BBM super charger is? Full weight or gutted?
Gutted is 11.60
Full body weight is 13.1
1990 G60 Corrado Front and rear seats. drove it to and from the track
on a Lysholm w/100k on it and over spun most of it's life.

This was a great read. Lots of info just dropped in from no where. In my opinion. After owning a few turbo boosted cars and then buying a g60. I don't really see how you all even argued with this guy. A turbo is a very crude way of forcing air....hot air at that and most know that every 10° drop in intake temp equals about 1 up. Along with that no turbo has been made to "fix" lag. They will always have lag. Why do you think large trucks use a turbo and not a SC. It would be instant power and **** would then snap. Its really not that hard to think about. Yes a turbo will spool much faster and in the end force a higher psi. But its not instant power and a SC is close. Ill be one to say I think its rude andtacky to take a SC platform car and slap in a bunch of bent pipes. Blow off valve and a turbo. Its a corrado guys. Not a Integra.:banghead:

Every new Lysholm we have sold has come with a full one year warranty. We started this kit back in 1998 so many are getting very old with high mileage. Since 1998 we have replaced or repaired very few 1 in about 100 or only about 1%

If you have a BBM supercharger that is 4+ years old with high miles or over driven and raced. It is a really good idea to have it rebuilt by us and start a new fresh life with all new bearings and seals.

If you have a turbo or a supercharger...if you take good care with proper installation / maintenance they take good care of you. Many have gone over 100,000 miles and 100's are still out there boosting cars all around the world.

It is crazy hard for me to believe that we have had this kit out now for nearly 14 years


Do you still support these kits? I mean do you rebuild the lysholm that you sold 14 years ago?
Thanks
Morgan

i don't know if it is my setup but i have lag on my build. i was pretty conservative on the port work too. at 3500, it RIPS...like it rips so hard itll break the tires loose in 2nd gear. 68mm stock unported charger too lol.

however the next motor will be 1.8t

I think JBETz title says it all - Why NOT to install a turbo on the G60 8v engine that was engineered for a supercharger!

The car was engineered for a supercharger. If you build the motor for a turbo it will be a different story in the straight.
I have a G60 that rips well 16-18psi :p but with my turbo vr Corrado in turbo lag condition is way faster even when I had a small turbo and stock trans. G60 is a fun street car.

You cant just throw a turbo on a car and expect it to perform properly as some has tried.

Unless you have an SNS chip, that probably Digi-lag you're experiencing.

for the record, digi-lag does not come from the chip tune. great marketing tho! lag comes from issues from something not quite right in the digi 1 system.
see this thread as these many things cause digi lag.

to my knowledge we hold the 1/4 mile G60 world record with our software. we did not do it with lag. Also way up there with the real SAE hp dyno numbers. Gota love it when you see guys claiming 300 whp on g-lader :)
peace

I won't even begin to portray that I know as much about chip tuning as BBM or SNS. With that being said, I drove my G60 for the entire 90's decade with what I thought was supercharger "lag".

Mkrad explained to me what caused it and said he could eliminate it. After I installed his chip, that ridiculous hesitation ended. It was explained to me as a built in slight hesitation before it goes into closed loop. What ghost in the machine is responsible, I don't know.

if we are talking about the stock chips, yes they are very prone to the lag and it gets worse if you start doing mods. yes i will agree a good program will help to keep the system from the dreaded lag. an improper tune for what combination you are running will most certainly magnify this. however most every Corrado G60 that I have worked on in my shop had the dreaded lag from issues in the system making the ecu go into, lag, rich or lean mode. so yes in away my comment was right and also wrong. curing a car with other issues that are making it lag with a chip, don't think so!

bbm stage 4, been tempted on calling BBM and see if they can alter the chip for my 9:1 compression pistons because the stock tune is supposed to accommodate the stock compression. its already running lean at cruise (confirmed with wideband)

you can run a standard stage 4 tune at 9:1, if you need to just back your timing off a bit at the distributor and be sure to time it by the G60 procedure.

Yes, more hp does not make for a quicker car... When we were running our drag Scirocco it would beat turbo cars that had much more hp, even cars that had an additional 100 hp. This red Honda was claiming to make over 350hp. We were making about 240 wheel hp. This chart shows the torque difference and the turbo still has more wheel hp. Also you have to account for turbo lag and believe me turbo lag is always a big deal when going up against a supercharged car.



This Video is what i like to see!!!! Turbo Honda getting left by a G60! Enough said!!!!!!:wave

John i will post a video soon as i finish in the next 2 weeks on my rabbit g60 build.
